2012 Transmission and Distribution Systems Reliability Study and Report

New York State Energy Law Section 6-108 directs the Energy Planning Board to undertake a study of the overall reliability of the State's electric transmission and distribution system and prepare a report on such study's findings and legislative recommendations on or before September 1, 2012.

Maintaining system reliability is a continuous effort and is a process as dynamic as system conditions change. The New York State Transmission and Distribution Systems Reliability Study and Report [PDF] provides a broad overview of the current electric transmission and distribution system and the many processes and activities that comprise the oversight of the electric system to ensure that reliable energy services are provided to all consumers in the State.
